Samsung has launched Galaxy Beam which it claims is the first of its kind Android based projector phone. The device has a 4 inch WVGA multi-touch capacitive LCD display with a pixel dimension of 800x480. This phone runs on Android 2.3 Gingerbread and is powered with a 1 GHz dual core processor with 768 MB RAM.
The Beam is equipped with a 15 lumen Digital Light Projector that can project a 50 inch 360p image at a distance of 2 meters. This stylish phone is 12. 5 mm thick and weighs just 145 grams. Galaxy Beam has a 5 megapixel camera that captures video at 720p. There is a 1.3 megapixel up front video camera that makes video chat easy.
The phone comes with 8 GB internal storage expandable up to 32 GB via microSD slot. The 2000 mAh battery when fully juiced is good for 20 hours of 2G talk time and 3 hours of video playback using the projector. A number of apps come preloaded with this phone including Google Play and a Drawing tool app for presentations. The Galaxy Beam is definitely a cool device, but at a price of Rs 30,000 will it find takers?
